Happy Pi Day!

For Pi Day I stamped over A England Whispering  Waves using Hehe plate Hehe-053 and Colour Alike “a Venus”. Only had time to do a couple of nails with the Pi-themed stamping plate…

   
    

  
 

Here is Whispering Waves on its own; two coats plus top coat.

Pretty Serious Pookie and stamping

Happy New Year! This beautiful, bright blue polish is Pookie from the Pretty Serious Well Meaning But Ultimately Quite Awkward Pet Names collection!

prettyserious_pookie2

Two coats plus top coat, great formula! Love this unique shade of turquoise blue!

Now, Pookie is one of the nicknames  of my cat Possum – actually, The Lady-Pookie is her full nickname. Because Pookie was a nickname of one of my parents’ cats (may he rest in peace) who was an orange tabby, and Possum is also an orange tabby but a female orange tabby.  I tried to take a “my nails and my cat” pic here but she wasn’t too thrilled with the flash!

I stamped over Pookie using Kleancolor Metallic Orange and these cute little roly-poly cats that remind me of Possum, from Hehe plate Hehe-023!

Here’s Possum still at the top of that cat tree, still not looking too thrilled!

Sometimes she likes to roll around on the floor and show off her super fluffy belly!

Different Dimension Pluto is Still a Planet To Me, Pretty and Polished Weather the Storm, and a comparison

Different Dimension Pluto is Still a Planet to Me is a denim-blue polish with gold fleck shimmer. I used three coats plus top coat.

On my ring finger is Pretty and Polished Weather the Storm, a greyed blue dusty creme. Two coats plus top coat for this one.

I wanted to compare these two blues to Zoya Skylar. 

prettyandpolished_weatherthestorm_zoya_skylar

Skylar is on my thumb below. Three coats plus top coat; the formula was a little thin. The photo is unfortunately a little overexposed. 

differentdimension_plutoisstillaplanet_prettyandpolished_weatherthestorm_zoya_skylar2

As you can see the base of Skylar is similar to Weather the Storm but it’s  even more of a greyed, faded shade of blue. The shimmer particles are smaller glass fleck than those in Pluto, and are silvery/multicolour in tone. Pluto is the brightest blue of the three. 

Here is a photo of Skylar on my thumb, better showing the tiny multicoloured glass fleck.

Ellagee Zaldrizes and Mhysa

These two polishes are from Ellagee’s Fire Made Flesh collection, and they come with these cool dragon claw rings around the bottle tops.

Zaldrizes is a pale yellow-beige nude with gold glass fleck.

I used two coats plus top coat.

I used french tip guides to make half-moons and applied Mhysa, a blue with gold glass fleck that appears a bit green through the blue, overtop.

I used two coats of Mhysa followed by a final layer of topcoat.

Kleancolor Neon Pink and Starlight Polish Ever Blue

Here’s a layering combo I did using Kleancolor Neon Pink and Starlight Polish Ever Blue, a glass-fleck topper that shifts from blue to pink. Two coats of the Kleancolor followed by one coat of Ever Blue and topcoat. With flash:

I’ve got a couple of lovely pastel holos with glass-flecks and shimmer to show you today.

The lime green is Il était un vernis Matcha Doing Today? and the seafoam /minty blue-green is Picture Polish Honeymoon. First two photos under Ottlite.

I then added stamping using Colour Alike “A Blue Ocean” over Matcha Doing Today and “A Fresh Mojito” over Honeymoon. The image is from It Girl plate 101.

Eat Sleep Polish Supernova, Jupiter Grapes, and Planet Pluto

Today I have three Eat Sleep Polish holos with colour-shifting glass flecks to show you. First, Supernova with an accent nail of Jupiter Grapes. Supernova is a fuchsia/plum sort of shade with blue-to-fuchsia glass flecks. Jupiter Grapes is a slightly blue-toned purple with similar blue-to-fuchsia glass flecks, although they don’t appear as prominent as in Supernova. Under Ott lite:

On my right hand I did the opposite using Supernova as the accent and Jupiter Grapes for most of the nails. With flash:

Later I decided to compare Jupiter Grapes and Planet Pluto, which is an indigo-toned blue, again with glass flecks that mostly appear blue in this polish. Here is Planet Pluto with a ring finger accent of Jupiter Grapes, in sunlight:
